Hi Clif, did you know there's a Wharram owner builder, Sam Wentz who lives in Olympia and just finished and launched a Tiki 30. He might have some contacts for you, think his number is listed. There's also a Paih 31 owner at LongBeach WA, Larry Warnberg. I have a Pahi 31 on Camano Is.
Good luck finding a good Wharram,
Frank

So they are both i-beams and triangular.
